the mysterious

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. His eyes are closed.

pretty little bits

“The arts are not the pretty but irrelevant bits around the border of reality. They are highways into the center of a reality which cannot be glimpsed, let alone grasped, any other way.”  N. T. Wright

shock of the new

“Fear always accompanies the making of art and is generated by the shock of seeing an idea take form – a sculpture in the mind is safe and secure – a work rarely behaves as I intend, uncertainty and unpredictability are always present – even in a work as familiar as this one. Whatever the result, it is my responsibility which I take seriously – it has to be right, whatever right means.”
